So this is the first time that I am posting on a Sunday like I had assumed when I worked out this new schedule. This being the first week i.e the reading week, I didn't do much of anything else other than read some of the books from my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads. But before I get into that I would like to say that the reason why I did not post anything the last week of April is because I just didn't feel like I had anything worth sharing, you know? I spent the entire week on my playstation and just generally staring into empty space. Anyways, here are the books I read this week.
Being a game designer is hard, for you have to religiously invest a bulk of your time in doing two important tasks, playing games and making them.
I know....I know its Monday and I am supposed to talk about my week on Sunday. But just like the Reading Week #1 I just wasn't able to do that. I don't know if people outside India know that we don't have two-day weekends here, we just have a weekend and that's Sunday. So that's my excuse, any ways lets see what I was able to achieve in my first Writing Week.
Since I came up with this new schedule only a couple of days ago I was not able to read as much as I had hoped but still I was able to finish two very short but amazing reads namely 'The Call of Cthulu by H.P. Lovecraft' and 'Guns by Stephen King' I also read 'The Art of Game design : A Book of lenses by Jesse Schell' but that book is more of a bible, in that it is referred to almost every time I design a new game.
So as it turns out trying to write poems and short stories, read a decent amount of books, watch movies, play games and review them also design and prototype my own games all at the same time and retain a shred of my sanity is something that is really hard to do, who knew ?
